Today is World Hijab Day, a global event calling on all women–even non-Muslims–to “wear and experience” the hijab. In response, Yasmine Mohammed launched No Hijab Day, also observed today, to raise awareness for women around the world who are forced to wear headscarves.

Mohammed joins True North’s Andrew Lawton to discuss the initiative.

We’re asking readers, like you, to make a contribution in support of True North’s fact-based, independent journalism.

Unlike the mainstream media, True North isn’t getting a government bailout. Instead, we depend on the generosity of Canadians like you.

How can a media outlet be trusted to remain neutral and fair if they’re beneficiaries of a government handout? We don’t think they can.

This is why independent media in Canada is more important than ever. If you’re able, please make a tax-deductible donation to True North today. Thank you so much.
